* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Quote from: Bezenwepwy;73547
You know, I think that's the first time anyone from KO has ever stated what being heri-sesheta entails in such a down to earth way. It is what I suspected it must be, but there has been this habit of KO priests being very hush-hush and vague about it whenever it has come up.


Really? Pff. I wouldn't talk about exactly how I became heri-sesheta, nor necessarily everything I do in that role, but the fact that heri-sesheta priests know Things and do Things related to their Parent(s) isn't secret. Or shouldn't be.

In an early essay (from 1998), Hemet has an involved description of heri-sesheta work as being a lot of spiritual and magical counseling, but in this more recent Daily Devotions mailing, she refers to it as a "mystery-keeping priest," which is basically how it's understood today. (Things have shifted somewhat over the years, so many of these old essays and mailings are kind of outdated. For instance, "Imakhu" has recently been retired as a title.)

Honestly, at this point in my completely non-temple-oriented practice, I'm working my way around to a usage of "priest" that is far more similar to a religious witchcraft approach than anything else.  Not in the usual r.w. "we are all priests" way, but in the sense that a priest is an initiate of the mysteries of a god.

What that means in its fullest sense is not something I know either, as I'm not one (yet).

 
That would lead me to ask how you know if you've been initiated into the mysteries of said god. I've had interest in mystery work, and sometimes I think my Two are leading me down such a path... but hell if I know for certain if that is what is going on.

On a side note, I also like tool, and servant. I've used both in regards to myself.

In my case, I've been set a very specific puzzle, and it came with a very specific set of ritual cues to go with it (due to the nature of the puzzle).  I have not solved the problem - nor solved the problem of how to present the puzzle to others - nor done the ritual.

I have, however, angsted a lot, and consulted with people who know how to do this sort of ritual work who have confirmed that yes, there is a Thing there, and can probably help me debug the ritualising process to make sure I don't make it go grievously wrong so that I can have the Thing and potentially train others in Thing-acquisition in the long run.

Because - since my god is an asshole - if I don't have the Thing I will pine for the Thing for the rest of my life.

NEVER!

That is interesting. I'm not really sure what it is I'm on currently... I'm still figuring that all out.

I could tweak an old response and say Tool?  The connotations of the other terms used sometimes squick people.


I think "tool" is the best label I can think of. It raises more questions and causes conversation, plus we're not "impeding" on anyone's bandwagon. I don't really feel comfortable calling myself a priestess because I always think that a) I don't live up to the duties that the label incurs in my mind and b) I don't feel I have to right to claim that.

For the OP, I even do that much. You are golden on the system you have and I think it's cool you have a system in place.
